Finally, the plastic law comes!
The United Nations is now most likely to adopt a law to prevent plastic from entering the ocean.
This is due to the fact that 190 countries now have to adopt a zero-release of plastic to come into place.
There is a long way to go, but finally this will be put on the agenda.
More plastic a fish in the ocean.
If no action is taken now, by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean.
Today, around 15 tons of plastic is thrown into the sea every minute. This threatens both nature and wildlife and ultimately ends up in our body’s because we eat fish that have in turn absorbed microscopic plastic particles.
So, in reality we eat our own garbage.
It was WWF who came up with the idea of a zero discharge of plastic, this summer. And this has obviously gained momentum on the governing people around the world, because now most likely the decision will go through in the UN.
This is an important turnaround from the 190 countries that will adopt this statement, as propagation of the oceans is probably one of the fast-growing environmental problems the world is facing today.
WWF is very pleased with how the idea has been received and followed up from the UN.
As a result of this decision that will come, there must necessarily be a partial ban on non-reusable plastic.
Today, two countries, Kenya and Rwanda have a ban on plastic bags while France will introduce a ban on disposable cutlery.
It is encouraged that other countries also do as the mentioned above, and begin the process of banning plastic that may be offset.
A happy day!
For us who work with Onebitnews, this is a joyful because we love the nature and the environment. We have been looking with greater and greater concern about how the micro plastic has penetrated almost everything in the food chain.
Now, we want to ask you readers of the magazine if you have any environmental issues you’re fighting for or would like to be taken care of.
